Designed to improve the audio quality of your videos, the compact Video Micro microphone captures every sound with pristine clarity. It incorporates a high-quality cardioid condenser microphone capsule for great quality audio recordings when used with a wide range of cameras. A directional microphone, the Video Micro reduces distracting peripheral sounds and focusses on the audio in front of the camera. Its pickup is more forgiving than RØDE's other on-camera microphones providing a more natural sound when recording indoors. Perfect for capturing incredible audio to accompany inspiring vision. The microphone body is made from aluminum, giving it a high level of RF rejection, and is finished in RØDE's high-grade ceramic anti-glare black coating. Included with the Video Micro is a camera shoe mount featuring a Rycote Lyre shock mount. Featuring a suspension structure composed of a hard-wearing thermoplastic, it is far more effective at minimizing unwanted vibrations, handling and cable-borne noise than traditional elastic suspensions. Virtually indestructible, the Rycote Lyre will never sag, snap, wear out or require rethreading to maintain its effectiveness. Also included is the WS9 synthetic furry wind shield with foam inner cell, designed for use in outdoor scenarios where wind and environmental noise can inhibit recordings. Optionally available is the RØDE SC7, a TRS to TRRS cable that allows the Video Micro to be used with smartphones, to capture crystal clear, directional sound for video and video applications such as Periscope.

Rode VideoMic Me Shotgun Mic Review
By Chris Gray
[[VIDEOID:5dc27ea15b339aabd07ec96284055af2]] Recording video or audio with an iPhone or other smart device has become the norm. Why not take better video or snapchat audio? You already have a great built in camera, so now we just need better audio. Thats where the Rode VideoMic Me comes in.
It's a directional shotgun mic that is easy to use and set up. And it's passive, which means no batteries. While this may be a drawback for the more pro-user, the lack of battery or power may be better for the regular everyday user. With quality construction, it's built pretty tough - Mostly aluminum, with a bit of plastic on the back.
The Mic plugs in with a 3.5mm and is compatible with most smart devices that have the female end. There is even a passthrough connection in the back so you can listen after you record something. Heck, you can even use the Rode VideoMic Me for phone calls or FaceTime, if you want.
The kit is pretty decent and includes a dead cat and plastic clamping piece. All in all, a great device to capture better audio for Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook live, not to mention just recording memories on you device. I totally recommend this if you're in the market to increase the audio in your videos on a budget.

Get the Dead Cat For Winds, Still a Good Mic Without It
I love this Rode Mic, the one I purchased was the Rode VMGO Video Mic GO. I used it on my Sony A7II, Nikon D5500 and sometimes on my laptops for some vlogs. I mostly used this during a loud party like when theres a DJ invited to it and if they do play loud music. I wouldn't want my audio db's to pop or cut out so, I got this. This is a good ideal size and performance for those who are on a budget but want a good Mic. I would still also get the smaller version more for travel vlogs with mirrorless cameras than heavier rigs.
- Helps get audio in front of the mic and not so much from behind the mic.
- the Dead cat, (sold separately) is a good add-on to this for those suer windy outdoor recordings
- The audio is quality
- Plug in and Play
- Wire is short for bigger rigs
